Ballett: Schwanensee

WithLauren Cuthbertson



Classical ballet's most powerful story of love, betrayal and forgiveness returns to the stage of the Royal Opera House.

While out hunting, Prince Siegfried accidentally encounters a flock of swans. One of them turns out to be the beautiful Princess Odette and he instantly falls in love with her. But Odette is bound by a spell that turns her into a swan during the day. Can Siegfried free her? Tchaikovsky's sensational music combines with the expressive imagination of choreographer Liam Scarlett and set designer John Macfarlane to bring the dramatic pathos of Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov's classic ballet to life. Swan Lake remains one of the most popular works in the classical ballet canon to this day.
